News from our friends at Virginia 529
September is College Savings Month! That’s right, back to school means one year closer to college. So it’s not only the kids that should be hitting the books. With tuition rising at a higher pace than housing, energy and healthcare you might be wondering how you and your kids will afford it. Planning ahead and saving as early and often as possible are the best ways to prepare.
Today is the best time for families to sit down and learn the best options out there to save for college and increase the chances for a continued education after K-12. The options can be overwhelming, but a popular choice for families is saving in a 529 plan which offer additional tax benefits. Virginia is lucky to have four highly-ranked 529 programs and Virginia529.com is a great resource for families to learn more.
Virginia529.com allows families to focus on the value of saving for higher education and how to get started with four flexible, affordable and tax-advantaged programs! Watch a variety of short introduction videos on each program, get registered for an upcoming webinar or talk face to face with a representative at a variety of events during the month of September to learn how and why to #startyoursavings with Virginia529.
